I have been told by people that Adrien from Northlane's low screams are growls, but I am not convinced. I have linked below a video with the particular scream I would like to know the name of, and how to accomplish a similar sound.

I suspect you're talking about the hallowed Death Growl. And here's a chap demonstrating how to achieve the technique.

Finally, here's a top 10 from YouTube (NSFW), just to confirm we're talking about the same technique.


  • Thanks Morris! However I am finding mixed results. My vocal trainer originally would've agreed with you, but now is convinced it is a low fry scream – Barney Chambers Nov 13 '15 at 10:12
  • I wouldn't fret over the semantics. As there are multiple terms and phrases to explain the technique you're after, I think you'll just have to investigate further to find the right sound/method/approach for you. Vocal Fry on Wikipedia – Morris Nov 19 '15 at 11:49
